Norway forms open access panel

The Norwegian government has appointed a working group to advise on how to make research results openly accessible to the public.

The six-person group, which consists of academics, regional government and research institute representatives, will come up with a set of open access policy guidelines and present them to the ministry of education and research on 15 June.

“Together with countries such as the Netherlands and the UK, Norway wants to be part of the countries that are leading the movement to make research papers openly accessible to all,” said Bjørn Haugstad, secretary state at the ministry, in a statement on 21 January.
